Harrie Nijland – I once was truly focused on ‘Silence’. It was on a Festival at an activity called ‘Silent Disco’. People were disco-dancing with headphones on, in a music-less, silent room. Pretty weird. Without a headphone on you were definitely an outsider. After some shots of dancing people, who could only have visual contact with each other, I started to wonder: what is the crux of what is happening here. For me it was ‘Silence’. But how do you capture silence. And then there was that unexpected, senseless moment. A woman was standing in a dark corner of the room. The light touched the profile of her face. The rest was pretty dark, with a window in the background with a black lace curtain. In the computer I enhanced the contrast of the white face profile against the dark background; and I made the headphone a bit more visible. In the absence of detail and the very thin profile-line is ‘Silence’ for me. Visit Harrie’s blog here.
Jörg Kruth – I took this at nighttime standing at a station in the countryside. Visit Jörg’s blog here.
Kari Jeppesen – “All those places Where I recall the memories That gripped me And pinned me down I go to these places Intending to think To think of nothing No anticipate And somehow expect You’ll find me there That by some miracle You’d be aware” (P.J. Harvey, Silence) Visit Kari’s blog here.

Mårten Lundgren – This is my picture to the assignment “The silence”. The picture was taken some days ago in the evening. The place were I made the picture is Kolmården (as usual). Visit Mårtens blog here.
Robin Down (aka northumbrianlight) – A detail from one of a pair of life-sized tomb effigies in Hexham Abbey – ‘unknown 14th century women’ – a long time silent. Visit Robin’s blog here.
Terje Hellesø – This image is from a summer evening at Sandön, outside Ängelholm in Skåne. It was one of those calm and warm summer evenings. In the front it looks like a sleeping dog, just to strenghten even more the feelings of “silence” or “resting”. Visit Terjes blogs here and here.
Tim Diggles – My photograph for Silence is one of my Flat Life series, 200 photographs taken in my flat in Tunstall, Stoke-on-Trent, in 2014. Visit Tim’s blog here.
